As of December, 2013, True.com (TRUE Beginnings LLC) went bankrupt and shut down their web site (see Story). If you are looking for information on other popular dating sites, take a look at our Match.com review and/or our eHarmony review.

Below, we have left our original True.com review for your continued reading. The review received its last major update on May 10, 2009.

We currently do not recommend this online dating service (see Story). Please check out our other dating site reviews.

Once called TRUEBeginnings, True.com has now grown to more than 11 million members. They have recently updated their look and feel to make it easier for you to access and use the dating features of their site. True's main goal is to offer you the very best in online relationship services. One unique aspect of True is their background check of its members. Anyone whose name has a U.S. felony or sexual offense conviction recorded in Rapsheets.com database is prevented from communicating with other members. While this doesn't catch everyone, it does create a safer dating environment for every True member.

Positive Features of True

  • Every True.com member is screened against one of the largest criminal records databases on the internet before they are allowed to communicate with other members. The site attempts to weed out those who have felony offenses
  • Members’ marital status is checked against public records
  • Free trial for seven days, which is extended for another 30 days if you upload a photo

Negative Features of True

  • More and more dating services seem to be displaying ads on their web sites and True.com is no exception. At least there are not a lot of ads listed and the ads are integrated into the site so they are not obtrusive
  • Some member complaints of difficulties in deactivating their True account
